Explore Fiber is a collaborative website showcasing and exploring fiber as a fine art material.
I just returned from a state student art competition and was happy to see that fiber is starting to show up as a fine art material. I know that students love to stitch, weave and use fiber in a variety of ways. Artists, like Danielle Clough, that use fiber in a direct way really inspire our young artists. Like so many artists, she is involved in many creative paths – some of her paths are in this post headline. There is a freshness and immediate quality about her work. Her stitching takes many forms, as you can see on her website. She also has quite a lot of online press you can peruse. I hope you enjoy the bold colors and designs of her work as much as I do. Check out this short video and here her talk about her work:
